Make sure to update your TechAlert! information to receive emergency notifications.
As temperatures are projected to dip into the single digits overnight, Texas Tech students should exercise caution and be smart when outside. Kelly Bennett, assistant professor at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, said there are ways to brave the cold.
TechAlert! is a mass notification system that simultaneously sends email, text and voice messages to alert the university community of emergency situations or class cancellations or delays.
- More than 17,000 students, faculty and staff have opted in to receive text message alerts.
- As of the last TechAlert! message, more than 40,600 voice and 35,400 email messages were sent.
If you have not already done so this semester, update cell phone, home phone or text
message information at www.ttu.edu/emergency. Up to four phone numbers can be entered, with TTY/TDD for hearing impaired and text
Parents, if you wish to receive TechAlert notifications, ask your student to include your phone number in their registry.
